    Does The ICS-Update allow the messaging application to go over 160 characters now

    Yes. There is an option you need to check. Which says split messages of 160 characters or more.

    Does the ICS messaging app unify threads independent of the source? Basically, do you have a conversation thread per User that uses GTalk, SMS, IMS, or whatever the same way WebOS does?

    Still waiting on my update to ICS here.

    The Ice Cream Sandwich Messaging app only really does SMS and MMS. Google Talk would appear in the Talk app and Instant Messaging (I'm assuming you mean this when you say "IMS") would have to be via a third-party app.

    Oh well.

    I don't know if Palm (now HP) has a patent on what they called Synergy, but it was a natural idea that people are interested in who they are talking to. Not how they are talking to them. And using a single application that would blend texts, multimedia texts, and messaging services (talk, yahoo, facebook) around your contacts is a feature I really miss from my old Pre. Having conversations with a single contact spread across three (or more) applications is dumb.

    I am looking forward to the better multi-tasking of Android 4 over Android 2.3 at least.

    Give me a min and I will take a screen shot and post it for you. I use GoSMS Pro but I know it's in the stock
    app also.

    UPDATE::: in the messaging app hit the menu button > then hit settings > Then below where is says Text (sms) message check Split Counter.
    That should be it. If not let me know.

    How did you get that because I would love the apk for that messaging app. Could you share it on here?!

    From using custom roms and now the leaked official, I can confirm that the SMS split is only on custom roms and not present on the official.

    I had no idea that was on a custom ROM only. Sorry guys. I thought the stock messaging app would be the same. You can always root and use Peter's Bugless Beast rom.

    I don't understand why Google can't seem to include even basic functionality such as splitting SMS messages or zooming in email in their native apps. Is this their way of trying to encourage 3rd party apps?

    OK because I thought I was going crazy there, I'm using the last 4.0.4 leak I do remember using dooderbutt and it featured split texting, but every time I would text my friends over 160 characters they would tell that all they got was strange symbols coming from my text =|

    I actually had this problem with the stock messenging app with gingerbread and switched to GoSMS Pro which seemed to fix the problem. I

    I also used this app because it allowed for personalized text tones which I liked

    Same here. I've also just started using the pop-up messaging feature since I got tired of always going into the app via the notifications to reply or delete the message.

    I don't actually like using 3rd party apps instead of stock apps. I don't know why, it just doesn't Ferrell right to me. Is there a custom rom that the stock messaging app had splits texting that works for both the sender and receiver? Maybe I could go through the zip file and rip the APK and post it up here for you guys to download =)

    I'm with you, mostly - plus I think the 3rd party options are sorta fugly/clunky.

    The two things I wish the stock app did was an always-on character counter and splitting long messages. I miss the patching options from webOS.

    +1 on that. But, that was a feature of using HTML+Javascript applications rather then binary applications. So patching applications can't exist for Android applications in the same way. Unless someone ports the WebOS runtime to Android.

    The only thing I know of is that in the market, there is a port of the official ics messaging app. So technically its still third party but its the closest to stock you can get. I believe it offers SMS split.

    O to whoever else was saying it, yea whenever I tried the option in custom roms for SMS split, I too got the crazy symbols. The only app that has properly split for me is gosms which is typically my everyday messaging app.

    Agreed! I seriously never got tired of people saying "there's a patch for that" in the precentral forums. Haha.
